Description

Environmental protection and trail maintenance in the geothermal town Hveragerdi, August 7 - August 17, 2018.

The volunteers will have the unique opportunity to work in the hot spring capital of the world Hveragerði, volunteering for the municipality. The town is built above a hot-spring field, and derives its name from the Icelandic word for hot spring: hver. Volunteers will mainly be working in the town of Hveragerði and the surroundings. The main tasks include pulling and removing weeds and applying preservation on wood. The team will also do some work in a forested area in the municipality, like making walking paths. Other tasks might be cleaning up and light maintenance in the public recreational areas of the township. The work can be physically demanding and volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors and to be flexible to work in all the diverse tasks connected with the project.

Around this time of the summer solstice, the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The nights are magical and staying up enjoying the beautiful surroundings is a unique experience.
